Looks like we are in a battle with history tomorow
The Latin root of "ides" means "to divide," so ides basically just denotes the middle of the month. The Roman calendar designates the 15th as the ides of March, May, July and October, and the 13th day is the ides for all other months.
Since then, the Ides of March has come to be known as an unlucky day, similar to Friday the 13th. But is it really such a bad day? Well, apparently a lot of other bad things have happened on this date throughout history, including a cyclone that hit Samoa in 1889, the German occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1939 and the cancellation of The Ed Sullivan Show in 1971, according to Smithsonian.com. Beware the Ides of March indeed.
